Sunday, Bloody Sunday...

... is upon us again. Anannya Deb conducts the 11th BQC quiz of season 3 tomorrow, a much-awaited event that has led to the collapse in the prices of airline tickets out of Bombay. No one's leaving town; they're all staying to watch the carnage; blood, shattered bone, mangled flesh; the desolate wailing of those unfortunate enough to survive.

Apropos of nothing, I wonder why more girls don't come to BQC quizzes.

Anyway, here are the details:

Who QM: Anannya Deb

When quiz: 3:00 pm, Sunday, September 7, 2008 (Please be there by 2:40 pm)

Where, bugger: Pinstorm, Ground Floor, Swati House (Next to Kotak Bank on Linking Road), North Avenue, Santa Cruz (W).

Directions:

From the south: If you come north on Linking Road from Bandra to SantaCruz, you'll find a large Benetton Store on the right. At the end of that block is a Kotak Bank at the corner. Take a right and it's the next building, take the first gate and tell the sentry you've come for a meeting.

From the north: If you get on to Linking Road at the airplane park end, you'll cross a HDFC Bank. A block later, you'll see a Kotak Bank on the corner - do not cross it. Take a left at that point and it's the building next to Kotak Bank.

Newcomers are welcome at BQC quizzes, and do not need to form teams before coming. Teams are normally formed by a draw of lots at the venue itself, and everybody gets to take part. The questions are generally not the boring "you-know-it-or-you-don't" types, but accessible and workoutable ones.

Okay, cut-paste of details-template over, let us return to the present time. The report of our last quiz isn't yet up -- mea culpa. I shall now put up reports of both the last quiz and tomorrow's massacre in the same report, hopefully on Monday, perhaps on Tuesday, no later.

If I survive. When Anannya Deb asks questions, the earth shakes...
